Errors in Imaging 1st ed

Errors in Imaging 1st ed

This book offers a thorough, clear and practical guide to identifying, preventing and correcting any error or bias that may arise during the interpretation and reporting of medical images. It combines information and insights from the fields of radiology, expertise theory, cognitive psychology, and advanced learning practices with the author’s considerable clinical (radiologic) experience. In addition, the book features an extensive “Teaching Cases Section” that simulates real-world situations, giving readers an opportunity to practice what they have just learned. The purpose of the book is to provide readers with essential information and strategies, and to point out the deficiencies of the current radiology education system, in order to minimize the occurrence and the clinical impact of errors in imaging by offering the proper education and training for imaging professionals. It offers a valuable guide for diagnostic radiologists and all other imaging professionals, whether in training or in practice. Though the main emphasis is on computed tomography and magnetic resonance, the general principles are applicable to all conventional imaging modalities.

CT of the Heart (Contemporary Medical Imaging) 2nd Edition

CT of the Heart (Contemporary Medical Imaging) 2nd Edition

CT of the Heart 2nd Edition

This book is a comprehensive and richly-illustrated guide to cardiac CT, its current state, applications, and future directions. While the first edition of this text focused on what was then a novel instrument looking for application, this edition comes at a time where a wealth of guideline-driven, robust, and beneficial clinical applications have evolved that are enabled by an enormous and ever growing field of technology. Accordingly, the focus of the text has shifted from a technology-centric to a more patient-centric appraisal. While the specifications and capabilities of the CT system itself remain front and center as the basis for diagnostic success, much of the benefit derived from cardiac CT today comes from avant-garde technologies enabling enhanced visualization, quantitative imaging, and functional assessment, along with exciting deep learning, and artificial intelligence applications. Cardiac CT is no longer a mere tool for non-invasive coronary artery stenosis detection in the chest pain diagnostic algorithms; cardiac CT has proven its value for uses as diverse as personalized cardiovascular risk stratification, prediction, and management, diagnosing lesion-specific ischemia, guiding minimally invasive structural heart disease therapy, and planning cardiovascular surgery, among many others. This second edition is an authoritative guide and reference for both novices and experts in the medical imaging sciences who have an interest in cardiac CT.

This richly illustrated book summarizes the state of the art in brain MRI with the 3-Tesla high-field scanner. The aim is to clarify the numerous advantages of using a 3-T high magnetic field MR scanner, especially in terms of sensitivity and specificity. The first section describes techniques for standard MR examination of the brain. Full descriptions are then provided of advanced protocols such as MR angiography, diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI), MR spectroscopy, MR tractography, and functional imaging. Differences in diagnostic features when performing these examinations at 3 T and at 1.5 T are highlighted. In addition, safety issues relating to the installation and use of a high-field scanner are discussed. The second section then describes and illustrates in detail each of the main clinical applications of 3-T MRI in the human brain: trauma, stroke, white matter disease, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumors, inflammatory disease, psychiatric disorders, etc. A final chapter is dedicated to the evaluation of 7-T MRI within both research and potential clinical settings.
